Unemployment is as high as it was under Thatcher in 1979

So says Guido Fawkes in some kind of quixotic prediction of the Tories victory at a snap election. Perhaps he's suffering a bout of madness brought on by some hangover from his drug fuelled youth. It's his £50 (after the state has taken it's necessary dues of course) I suppose.

Lest we forget though, perhaps a reminder is in order of what happened to unemployment after the year of 1979. This one should suffice.
